    We are at a site just outside Fort Wiliam and it has been pi**ing down! my motorhome is looking very grubby, not how I usually let it get, what motorhome colours disguise dirt the best, or does anybody care!

    I had the same problem with the white/cream vans I owned. When I bought the metallic silver RMB I noticed it did not show dirt, mainly as the window frames were alloy and not rubber so no black streaks. Since the purchase of the later model RMB which is in light blue metallic, I have noticed it does show any dirt easily. So colour choice does matter if a dirty van bothers you.

    I clean Shirley once a year - whether she needs it or not.

    She's already a grubby off-white colour so any extra dirt doesn't show. :BigGrin:

    Udo gets cleaned a lot. An awful lot.

    He's a metallic silver / gold colour. Rather nice, in my view.

    I don't like him dirty.

    Ann insisted that Alice was cleaned before we went away (unless spur of moment) now she went to the hand car wash people so has had her clean outside for the year :BigGrin: or until I sell her :Smile:

    I clean Penelope at the start and end of the summer touring season.
    I wash the Motorhome more frequently however.

    Toluny is white/burgundy and she is cleaned in Spring or if embarrassingly filthy at other times.
    Inside is done every day I'm aboard :RollEyes:

    Love the names funsters have given their motorhomes.
    We haven't actually named ours yet? how do we know if it's a boy or girl?

    Are they chastised like a naughty child when they misbehave?
    Fascinated

    The van as its called get a wash down after every time we use it and that's most weekends BUT I made the mistake a week or so back of using auto gleem paint restorer to remove a mark and now I'm going to have to do the whole van :Sad: as the bit I did stands out like a sore thumb

    Sorry about the lack of response about cleaning, just been carted off to the local hospital with a kidney infection, not a pleasant 24 hours, good job motorhome touring has flexible schedules.:Sad:
